No, you cannot use Rumble Paks or other accessories with the N64 wireless controller

The new Switch Online Expansion Pack service launches today, and as part of it, Nintendo released some new (but old) controllers. Its classic three-pronged pad has been reissued as a wireless controller for the Nintendo 64 games library. We saw a number of promotional shots of this new version of the controller, figured it out habit need a Rumble Pak and even spotted a few extra buttons on it, but what about the bottom of that – is the slot still there?

Australian Nintendo website Vooks.net managed to get some real-life footage of the controller – and confirmed that the controller’s slot was filled. It’s probably the compartment for the battery, wireless functions, and rumble feedback. It was also confirmed that the controller needed a firmware update before it could work and found that the tiny little hole on top of the analog stick is gone.
